      Hi Scotty if you had to pick between a new 2019 Ford Flex SEL or Ford Explorer XLT which one would you go with and why? I am currently looking at both of these and kinda enjoy the feel of them both and the price isn't to bad.

      well scotty yes they are "just following the market" but say that market is riddled with debt!! oh yeah that mortgage debt bubble that credit card debt bubble and collage debt bubble and yes you of all people should know their is an auto loan bubble!!
      so what does this all mean what could i possibly be getting at???

      well simple these bubbles are going to bust soon yes it will effect most places around the world but those governments working on a gold standard!! see Russia china and India all have been stacking gold back yeah our government not so... bottom line and short short version is when these bubbles pop no American will be buying anything!!! get it now???

      even them nutty Europeans have a plan for post mart collapse... it's called trading with china the American dollar will be worthless!!

      ford has said in past documentaries in the early to mid 2000's that Europe was really good too them in fact northern Europe!! since 95 they go on to say that is where they make most of their money not here!! that was as the the plant in India came onboard that was 13-15 years ago i saw that!! now they are doing great in India and Europe as well as south America!! so basically i am saying that they are building these car lines everywhere else in the world but here and id say it is because they know once that credit bubble pops they would have lost their asses to keep them 5 car lines running for at best 2 more years of credit based sales!! see they pay people too tell them these things and they them well!!

        What I don't understand is why Ford isn't a perfect car or truck. They have been around so long and have been involved in the very evolution of automobiles. And still, they have problems.....after all of this time. I think that's shameful frankly.

          The management at Ford is driving it into the ground.. Why they discontinued the Lincoln Town car and Crown vic right when they had a monopoly on the police and black car market is a decision that made no sense.. Now the new lincoln cars are as small as a KIA, are they discontinuing their lincoln cars now as well?

              We have a focus. 09. 200,000 miles. The whole key is change the oil. It has a chain for a timing belt. The first thing i do when i look at a car. Does it have a chain? We are on are 4th set of tires. 3 sets of breaks. Its a good car. Cheap. No car payments. The thing that is so important. We live in the south. No salt. Body still looks great.

                  Hi Scotty, they’re switching to hybrid because of the poor 3rd world countries and traffic. They are almost 80% of Ford Fusion cars in Jordan because it’s all stop and go traffic better than small engines

                        I already buy American made Toyota, Honda because they treat me like a customer. They last forever. Putin owns the anti American uaw that oblama/taxpayers gave 16 billion dollars to. The oblama/Putin uranium deal sold the uaw to Putin.

                                      I like big SUV's as much as any American but let's face it, you only see fat people driving those things around. All of the American car companies are doing the same thing now, they will stop making cars in a year or two to focus on crossovers. GM said it was doing this but will be designing and building full electric cars next but since it's GM, I don't really believe them. I don't blame them since most car reviewers are always talking about how terrible domestic cars are.

                                                    Ford should bring back the Mercury brand to sell cars for people who still desire cars instead of SUV's and trucks. They should bring back a Mustang based Mercury Cougar as an upscale Mustang like it was originally. They could base their cars on the Ford SUV platforms and probably turn quite a profit. This way, they wouldn't be the badge engineering guilty party Ford forced them into the last 20 years from their neglect. Re-establish the Lincoln Mercury division and bring back the best car commercials of all time: "At the Sign of the Cat".

                                                          Dear Scotty, I have a 1990 Izuzu TFS 4x4, They were sold in the USA, mine is a Japanese import to NewZealand. It has 420000km, I have had it since 63000. How long do these trucks engines last for, It puff a bit of smoke when it starts, it starts very quickly, thtoo fast for the glow plug light to come on. Body is good for NZ as it has no rust.

                                                            Scotty: any suggestions on power door locks not locking when functioned by the switch on the driver's door. R..passenger door on my '90 Cadillac wouldn't go down electrically and when I pushed it down it felt like 2 metal surfaces moving without enough lubrication. Would prefer not to take off the interior door panel and was wondering if there is some way to spray silicone lube into some area that could lube the locking mechanism. I'm 72 and full of arthritis and don't fancy having to wrestle with a door panel. Thanks!!!

Thought I could take the aluminum foil heat shield off when replacing radiator and didn't replace it. Won't do that again. Melted down the front like fukishima and Chernobyl had a twisted love child right in the engine bay. Smoked out the cabin with a real nice burnt plastic smell. Putting a plastic valve cover 2" away from a looped rising header system... I'll stick to Honda thanks all the same ford.

You know these guys buy the foreign cars and take them apart to take a good look at them and say "nope, not gonna spend the money."
